Leaking air line or what?

So, I pull into a great concrete camp site and level..All is great for while then over time (1-2 weeks) passenger side becomes out of level. Bath doors won't remain open, ice maker freezes up, etc. I assume the jacks either have a leak or what??

Love any ideas you might have?

Do we know what make/model/year/chassis/engine/trans/diesel/gas/class A/Class C, WHAT kind of unit are we asking about here? What mileage, any work done on it lately? Is this the first time you've developed any issues like you're describing or, has this been repetitive?

P.S. By the way,
It would be advisable to create a signature with all that vehicle info displayed. That way, in the future, if and when you ask about issues, we can tell right off the bat what we're dealing with.

If you have air leveling air leaks . Do you have remote compressor to keep air level up, is it working. If Hyd. jacks leaking maybe leaking solenoids or manual valve not tight. If you didn't dump air to bags and barely supported/lifted on jacks they can lean a bit when bags go down.

My unit is a Itasca Ellipse 42QD Diesel Pusher with tag axles. Auto leveling, auto air dump with all the bells and whistles. Little history as I bought this only 8-months ago.36,000/miles. Freightliner chassis.

Hit the Level button and if working correctly all will be fine, if not reset the Null and get yourself level.

Might also add to your Signature the make and model for future posts - always easier to help when we know what you are in.

My brother has a Winny and he says it's a PITA to re-level so he just drops and re-levels using the auto level feature.

Best of luck,

if it becomes unlevel after 1 or two weeks, just re level it. . overnight, i would worry about it. if your system is hwh, you would check the jacks for obvious external leaks, or if no leaks there , look at leaking solenoids. mark the jack shaft, and see if one is leaking down. replace that solenoid.
if it leaks down long term, i would not worry about it.
hwh strives for zero leaks, but its almost impossible to not have a small leak occasionally, most companies that mfg trucks, jets, helicopters, and military equipment have some allowable leaks.
especially dodge trucks. my pinion seal leaks, but if it has less than one drop per hour, they would not fix it. i replaced the seal myself.
